2004 Pre-Season Practice (official thread)

    Offensive Line Play

    If anyone has any information on how the offensive line performed, especially the right tackle position and any true freshman looking for playing time, I'd love to hear it. That is my single most concern of this team. Also, did Haw and Pittman run against the second string defense? That would explain why Hall and Ross had a combined 40 or so yards while Pittman and Haw had a combined 100+. Any information is certainly appreciated.

    Scrimmaged for 3 hours and no injuries being reported, thats what excites me most possibly :)

    The only piece of info on the RT spot that I have read from today is that it looks like Schafer's job to lose. Apparently he played pretty well but Barton didn't look 100%. Apparently he is still nursing an ankle injury.

    the 3-4 could really wreak havoc on opposing offenses with the LBs we have this year. i don't think it should be used full time, but every once in a while it'll be nice to get all these guys on the field at the same time.

    Yes I was wondering the same thing. We tend to think our run defense is very good? then what happened with us giving up all these yards to freshmans? Is it because it was our 2nd team? because I read earlier that our 2nd team would play our 2nd team and our 3rd against our 3rd and ect. So it actually looks like if thats the case we shut down the run with only giving up 21 yards to both hall and Ross. I'm VERY excited about Haw's performance, and I think he'll prolly be a third down back for his hands outta the back field.. what you guys think?

    Yes most to all of Haw and Pitt's came against the backups...including Haw's 34 yd run

    Maybe JT is taking a page out of the Patriots defensive playbook with his 3-4 defense.
    I think it's a great idea and I hope it's used a lot.
    I've heard the coach say that he doesn't believe in trying to mold a team into any certain philosophy. Instead, mold your team around the talent you have.
    This team is loaded with experienced Linebackers while also having a lot of inexperienced D linemen.
    The 3-4 makes perfect sense with this team.

    JT used the 3-4 Defense with a lot of great success at Youngstown St.

    I don't get the impression that the coaches were really trying to put their gameplan in right now and see how it works as much as just seeing different guys run similar plays and how each one looked doing it. I really think jt has a handfull of plays he will run every game and expects to be successful, but adds different wrinkles depending on who the opposing team is that particular week. I know that can be said of many teams and coaches, but I think jt subscribes to it a little more. I think he's looking at who can take a simple play and make something special out of it; rather than taking a special play and hoping someone can make it work.

    DL report from the scrimmage..any observations?

    For any of you with the media who were at the scrimmage, other than Pitcock, which DT's made an impact? I was very impressed with Sian Cotton's performance at the Spring Game, but haven't heard his name mentioned in scrimmage reports. Did Patterson look healthy? Was he at DT or DE? As for DE's, with Kudla out, who looked ready to play beyond Fraser and Richardson? Any info is appreciated. Go Bucks!

    Have I been readding the stats right? Only 1 TD allowed by the defense on 175 plays? Also it was the first drive?

    If so that is amazing, and I know the offense won the scrimage, but you have to be extremely happy with that.

    Do we view the lack of scoring TD's as a positive for the defense or do we become more concerned about the offense's effectiveness?
    There's two ways to look at it.

    No there were at least 2 tds given. The first one from Zwick to Holmes and another one on a 9 yard run by Smith. There may have been more, but I'm not sure
